I would have posted this earlier, but I had to watch it a couple of more times. I love how Tony busts the GOP on their bullshit procedures. Too bad Ironic Johnny wasn’t there instead.

    “Steamed Weiner on the Floor” – But seriously this was a total political stunt

    By the GOP.

  3. Ummm… Yeah…. Democrats use a procedure that requires a 2/3rds vote by the house for passage so that they can block any attempts at Republicans offering amendments to the bill, blame Republicans for the bill not passing that 2/3rds vote and then Wiener shouts at King, who voted exactly the same way that he did on the bill (Both voted for the bill).

    The GOP is pretty worthless, but to call this a BS GOP procedure is stretching it pretty far. It was the Democrats that suspended the rules that required the 2/3rds vote, not the Republicans. They did this to prevent the Republicans from offering any amendments to the bill.

    The Democrats have a 77 seat advantage in the House. There is absolutely nothing that the Republicans can do to have any affect on what goes on there. If a bill fails to pass the house, it’s because the Democrats can’t agree on it.

    Wiener’s nothing more than a show dog. He needs to stick to what he’s good at, wasting our tax dollars by going after talk radio advertisers and leave the feigned indignation to Boehner.
